When you're Right, you're you're Right; and you're Right.
I was very impressed by Platoon and the night battle when they were being overrun was bloody scary. It just generated FEAR in me, as the viewer. The tracer, the unknown etc, and when one US soldier used his mate to cover himself when the NVA breached his trench was fearful.
BTW, have you noticed the continuity error when Charlie confronts his Platoon SGT (not Willem Defoe but his name has just dropped out of my Head)? Between takes, he has changed from a muddy wet khaki singlet to a dry non-muddy singlet. I'm assuming that they took a lunch break...:-)

More movies I like:
THE DEVIL'S BRIGADE
Based on the story of one of the first Allied Special Forces units in World War 2, formed by merging a superbly trained unit of elite Canadian troops and a rabble of Americans facing the stockade or the firing squad.
FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
George Clooney manages to be a credible action lead, assisted by Vampire Danny Trejo, Vampire Selma Hayek, biker Tom Savini, preacher Harvey Keitel, and Quentin Tarantino as himself.
And as for the romance chatter. .to me it loses something when you remember that in the Biblical account we got kicked out of Eden because Women are suckers for smooth talking bad boys.

Here's a movie recommendation :
Its one of Stanley Kubrick's lesser-known films. Some may find it a little boring, but the incredible set designs and location shoots are worth any lull in the pacing of the film, in my opinion.
Its quite long though,over 3 hours, so set aside an evening or afternoon to watch it." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

Been on crutches for most of the last three weeks, given me chance for several movie nights. Watched this last night, a touching Japanese love story about a young man and dead bodies:
Also enjoyed, in no particular order:
Cross of Iron
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Take Shelter (absolutely superb film - Michael Shannon is imperious)
Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Tyrannosaur (bloody miserable but bloody good. very English)

I re watched Battle Royale last night..what a twisted flick that is." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

The movie he said most resembled the horror of urban warfare - Black Hawk Down.
